Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. Technically, this week’s prompt was to pick ten books you couldn’t believe you HAD read, but you guys know me… such a rebel. 😉 So, here are ten books I’m actually a bit ashamed that I haven’t read yet.
(I made myself pick one book per series max; otherwise, this list would mostly have just been the Throne of Glass books.)
1. Six of Crows – Leigh Bardugo
I feel like the literal last person in the entire YA book community to have not picked up this book.
2. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – Douglas Adams
I know, I know. How can you call yourself a scifi fan if you haven’t read this one, right?!
3. The Fellowship of the Ring – J. R. R. Tolkien
^ replace “scifi” with “fantasy” in previous caption ?
4. IT – Stephen King
^ replace “fantasy” with “horror” ???
5. Throne of Glass – Sarah J. Maas
I just really love Sarah’s writing, and I need to get a move on this series, BUT IN MY DEFENSE… at least I read The Assassin’s Blade!
6. Song of Achilles – Madeline Miller
You guys know I love my tragic gay love stories, so like… what rock have I been hiding under to not have read this yet?
7. Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Laini Taylor
This feels like it’s been on my TBR forever, so I’m finally ordering the UK paperbacks soon!
8. Vampire Academy – Richelle Mead
Another book that has been on my TBR FOREVEEEEER… so I got it from BookOutlet recently, and it’s in my “must read” list for 2018.
9. The Troop – Nick Cutter
This one, I just feel bad about because I requested it for my birthday a couple of years ago, my mom got it for me, I was so pumped… and I still haven’t read it. ?
10. The Book Thief – Markus Zusak
I know. For shame. I actually was going to read this earlier in the month for Life & Lit’s International Holocaust Remembrance Day event, but I literally had it on hold at the library all. month. long(!). And it never showed up, and then The Dollmaker of Krakow destroyed my soul forever, so I decided to hold off on this one until my heart heals a little bit.
